Want to know the best Killers in Dead by Daylight? There are 31 playable Killers in Dead by Daylight, but not all of them have enough power to terrorize Survivors. Only over-the-top killers have the capacity to hunt down Survivors one by one. You can choose aggressive and speedy or stealthy and sneaky Killers to stop the Entity’s insatiable hunger in Dead by Daylight. With a range of brutal Killers to choose from, it can be difficult to decide which one would be the best for you. Therefore, thanks to the DbD tier list, you will be able to distinguish the strongest and weakest Killers according to the current meta in the game.
We’ll rank the best and most broken killers in DbD in our tier list and criticize them a bit!
Dead by Daylight Tier S Killers
These are the most popular and fearful Killers in the game. What makes these DbD Killers top-tier and broken is their mobility, high range, and speed to take down Survivors. Especially the speed of Killers such as Nurse, Mastermind, and Blight puts most Survivors in a difficult situation. Besides, Killers like Huntress and Plague are also renowned for harassing enemies from afar.
Tier A Killers
These rugged Killers are quite powerful and deadly, even if not top-rated. These Killers are less preferred as they are more difficult to play than Top S Killers. However, if the mechanics are implemented correctly, Tier A DbD Killers has the potential to be the best on the list.
- Skull Merchant
Oni and Spirit are very good options for cornering Survivors. In addition, Artist, Cenobite, and Nemesis have the ability to disturb the Survivors from the other end of the map. Since Dredge and Onryo are Killers with a teleport ability, they are ideal for catching Survivors off-guard when they least expect it.
Dead by Daylight Tier B Killers
The reason why Tier B DbD Killers aren’t top of the list is because they’re so situational and fall short against a well-coordinated team. While playing these Killers, your chances of getting looped are very high, and you can’t get rid of such situations easily. Moreover, you waste a lot of time chasing a Survivor, giving the others time to finish the gens. Still, these Killers can be a killing machine in the right hands.
Dead by Daylight Tier C Killers
Compared to characters in higher tiers, those in this tier are weaker and have fewer important abilities. For example, you rarely see Killers like Twins and Nightmare in the game because they are both boring and ineffective to play. Also, these Killers are the least preferred as they are very easy to counter. To counter the Trapper, all you have to do is not step on his traps. It’s very easy, don’t you think?
